That’s the problem with compromise. When you settle for less than you know you could have, you poke a little hole in your soul.
We can only take so many hits to our authenticity. After awhile the only thing that will resurrect it is full bore, courageous, original choices.
My intention in this post is to cause you to pause and see where your compromises are slowly killing you. You have many unknown friends and supporters who await the inspiration of authentic expression that only you can offer.
Yes, we are all unique but there are threads and themes of affinity running through us. We lift one another by standing tall enough so that others can feel the light from our boldness.
When you stand tall by making an authentic choice, in an area that also inspires me; I stand a little taller too.
We are so close to tipping our world back to authentic harmony.
More and more of us each day are beating the drum of authentic expression. The biggest obstacle to enjoying such a world is simply the fear of looking like a fool.
But who’s truly the fool? One who stumbles in sincere authentic expression or one who hides safely behind the insidious mask of trying to fit in?
Because of societal conditioning, the fear of looking like a fool runs like faulty DNA through the fiber of our beings and the only antidote is choosing more authentically, more often.
Pure authenticity is the only thing big enough worth risking the approval of others. Authenticity requires glorious tribute to individual courage.
When you make the decision to stand tall in your own magnificence you must follow-through and announce it. Authenticity without expression is a watered down, less powerful force that causes unnecessary internal struggle.
If you’ve been brave but falling short of the mark look and see if you may have been holding back or watering down your expression.
Authenticity is best used in service to transformation. It’s truly the action of coming back to our most genuine core. Such genuineness must be seized and asserted with the glory it deserves.
Fear not. You have what it takes. Claim the work life you were meant to enjoy and check back here often. I’ve decided to lead this charge in a much bigger way.
